2020’s Most Enchanting Venice Carnival Gowns

It’s almost that time of year where St Mark’s square comes alive with actors, costumes and designer Venice Carnival gowns! For those heading to Italy to revel in February’s festivities, you’ll want to ensure these exquisite gowns make the trip. Perhaps an evening spent at one of Venice’s many outstanding restaurants or exclusive carnival balls is on the cards. Either way, these gowns will make you feel eternally chic throughout your time in this enchanting part of Italy.


Elegant Embellished Gowns

There’s nothing we love more than characterful embellishments and these Venice Carnival gowns are adorned with the chicest we’ve seen. The one-shoulder tulle cocktail dress by Marchesa Notte is a particular favourite of ours. Not only does this dress exude romance with its deep pink and purple ombre, but it also charms with an asymmetric, gathered tulle neckline. Meanwhile, the waist is defined by a deep purple velvet ribbon. Finally, the lower half of the skirt is a work of art adorned with ruffles, creating the illusion of dancing flames as you walk.


You can fully embrace the playful and theatrical nature of the carnival with the floral applique Point d’Esprit gown by Marchesa Notte. This gown features an off the shoulder neckline adorned with colourful floral appliques which perfectly contrast the dotted black overlay. These whimsical adornments continue with petals scattered on the bodice and upper half of the floor-length skirt. The waist is defined with a chic black velvet ribbon whilst the lower part of the skirt features additional flowers. This fairytale gown is simply magical and the perfect dress to attend a Venice Carnival ball.


Playful Prints When Boldness Is Key

If there’s ever a time to opt for a memorable print, it’s when selecting your Venice Carnival Gowns! In a sea of colourful clothing and fine fabrics, these gowns will ensure you still stand out. It’s no secret that Venice is one of the worlds most romantic destinations. Perhaps that’s why we’ve fallen so completely in love with the strapless polka dot organza dress by Dolce & Gabbana. This dress stuns with its prom-Esque strapless bodice, sweet pink hue and outstanding polka dot print. The bodice is also lightly boned with fitted bra cups to define your figure. Additionally, its voluminous tulle skirt drops from the cinched waistline with delicate ruffle detailing to define the tiered hem. Style this incredibly pretty dress with coordinating pink sandals and a red lip to enhance the deeply coloured dots.


We defy any admirer of floral gowns not to adore the off-shoulder floral print cotton gown by Caroline Constas. This gown also features a boned bodice, though the sweetheart neckline is decidedly more dramatic. A wrap design on the bust enhances the shape of the bodice and continues its figure-hugging fit. Meanwhile, ruffled straps fall from the shoulders, tying in beautifully with the cascading ruffles on the skirt. The skirt falls elegantly to the floor in a sea of ruffles with a sultry thigh-high split. Style yours with classic black strappy sandals for the maximum wow factor this February!
